Update Your Secret Word

Have you got this message?

To prevent abuse, a recent update to Mail2Blogger disabled easily guessable secret words. Please update your Mail2Blogger secret word.

I see it when I go to the Blogger Dashboard. It's been there a couple of weeks now and it has me flummoxed.

I'm surmising it's to do with emailing stuff to publish direct to the Blog. However the secret word thingy has me baffled. I've never set anything up as I don't use this feature. So why do I see the message? Maybe they just post it willy nilly on everyone's Blog.

Does anyone know whether we can get rid of the message or do we have to wait until Blogger decides to remove it?

Knitted Chairs? Post 150

This is beginning to turn into a knitting blog. Not deliberately, it’s just the way things are panning out.

I kid you not,knitted chairs do exist. I'm not going totally ga ga just yet. Well they're knitted covers really.

Seems like a new art form to me. They even have a website dedicated to them. It’s brilliant. If you don't believe me take a look Knitted Chairs. Here's a designer one. I'd love a chair like this. It's gorgeous.

Can you believe there’s even a Knit a Chair Day in London. Take a look at last year's here on You Tube.

It's a very environmentally friendly idea. Who'd have thought you could turn ordinary plastic garden chairs into works of art.

Are you up for it?

Well here’s the link to the pattern for the chair in the top picture.

In the meantime need a tune to knit to?
